The Maritime Squatters' Republic of JonesIsland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Captain Jakub Muza with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.779 billion Jones Islanders are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nukaszuby. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Jones Island economy, worth 93.2 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 33,538 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Theatre audiences often need a telescope to see the stage, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. JonesIsland's national animal is the sturgeon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

JonesIsland is ranked 43,371st in the world and 4th in Warzone Africa for Most Corrupt Governments, with 20.8 Kickbacks Per Hour.
